I am still not sure if the Melbourne University Basketball Club is right for me. Do you have some form of free trial?

Yes, we encourage anyone who is unsure about whether joining the club is right for them to come along to one of our Saturday morning training sessions and participate completely free of charge. Our coaches and domestic representatives will be able to answer your questions and provide you with further information at these sessions.




What is the difference between all the levels/competitions you operate?

Domestic: MUBC operates a large domestic program that caters to all skill levels, from beginners trying basketball for the first time, to experienced representative players. This is the program that the majority of our members participate in.


Big V: Big V is a state-wide, representative, semi-professional basketball league. We are represented in open age men (Championship), open age women (Division 1/2), and U23 men (Youth League 1).

Our Big V teams train multiple times per week, and play on weekends from March - August.

To be considered as a Big V player, you are expected to be a very high level basketball player with significant playing experience. These are the highest level teams we have at MUBC. Tryouts take place in October.

Club members are encouraged to come along and support our Big V teams at our home games, so consider coming along for some cheap drinks and high-level basketball entertainment!


UBL/Uni Nationals: The University Basketball League (UBL) and University Nationals (UniNats) are competitions operated by UniSport and are participated in by universities all over the country.

The UBL season runs from March - May, with games being played mid-week. Tryouts are in January/February.
UniNats is a week-long tournament that operates in September/October. Tryouts generally operate in August.

The majority of our UBL and UniNats players have Big V or NBL1 experience. You must be a currently enrolled student at The University of Melbourne to participate in either of these competitions.
